Cover title. It bears the date 1916, though the work appeared in Knizhnai︠a︡ letopisʹ for 11-18 Aug. 1915. See Compton

The text consists of brief poems and fragments by Kruchenykh rubber-stamped in red. Two poems by Ali︠a︡grov (Roman Jakobson) in letterpress, leaf [21]

Includes 2 collages. The cover collage consists of a red paper heart to which a real white button has been glued; there are no traces of holes on the verso that would indicate the button had been originally sewn. The collage on leaf [2] consists of a piece of light green paper, shaped with scissors. Rozanova's 9 full-page monochrome linocuts (red, black, yellow, or blue) are printed on various white and colored papers. The subject is the face cards, with linocut captions in borders. For discussion see Gerald Janecek's The look of Russian literature, p. 99 (where the number of cuts given is 8)

From an ed. of 140 copies. See Compton

Getty copy has mock dedication in black ink on inside front cover signed "Mit︠s︡kevich" and dated 21/VIII/1915.

Inscriptions on several other leaves have been erased, but remain partly legible. The inscription on leaf [3] recto is signed "Zaverchenykh" and that on [3] verso is signed "Zavertykhchir" (i.e. Kruchenykh). The latter is dated 25 VIII 1915
